Researchers Now Using Artificial Intelligence to Detect Crop Diseases

Can you ever imagine that the future of the earth’s food crops isn’t tied to fertilizers or organic technology, but, on AI or artificial intelligence? Food security is constantly threatened by a never ending list of threats. Climate variability in weather-unstable regions can cause sudden droughts that can kill off potential harvests. Also, political turmoil is also cause for logistical blockades that can block off farming, harvesting, and shipping produce. Then there is also the sudden appearance of plant disease and insect invasions can wipe out entire crops. A team of researchers from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland and Pennsylvania State University in the U.S. have turned towards artificial intelligence to aid in agriculture. This means deep learning algorithms have now been trained to detect crop disease…
